Mostly this is because I've been swamped with other work, although it
*would* really help if I had access to any of the problem

According to http://packages.qa.debian.org/b/boost.html boost has
*not* entered testing, and there's still a huge list of blockers at
I have *finally* found code I might be able to adapt to do globbing
without boost::regex, so hopefully 0.37 will be decoupled from boost,
but I don't know when Richard plans to do the next release or whether
I'll have the time to do the necessary adaptation.

I think this would be a disservice to the users of the platforms where
the tests fail; the binary is comprehensively broken for those
targets, and since it's a stack corruption bug, I'm not really happy
with it for the targets where it appears to work, either.
FWIW the problem seems to be somewhere inside sqlite.
